Our Web Design Agency is a Partner NOT a Vendor

What is the difference and why should you care?

A web design and development agency vendor will complete any tasks as they are sent to them, but views your website tasks as a mere to-do list, rarely offering constructive feedback unless prompted.

A partner web design agency has your back in all things concerning your website.

We see your website as our personal responsibility to help it succeed and care deeply about your messaging and the user experience offered to your customers. We view your website from a dual perspective, as both a business owner and as a customer.

We will consider important factors like…

  • How will the visitors on your website receive your messaging?
  • Are visitors receiving an excellent experience?
  • Will they easily find what they are looking for?
  • Tasks that are sent to our web design team are not simply implemented but also thought through to make sure you are presented with the best solutions available.

Our website design team at Hooked On Code is trained to look for ways to improve your customer’s experience and ensure you, as a business owner, are aware of all issues that arise as well as any areas in which we can improve your messaging so that you are clearly communicating with everyone who visits your website.

This begs the question: Why hire another vendor when you can have a partner who functions as an extension of your team?

Challenging the Web Design Industry Norms

Recently named One of the 10 Most Disruptive Women in Technology for 2022, Torre encourages the team here at Hooked On Code web design agency to constantly challenge the traditional norms of the web development industry, combatting various accepted standard operating procedures that she believes lead to overpromised expectations and inflexible solutions.

By understanding her clients’ difficulties, Torre has cultivated a work culture that focuses on creating a delightful experience without putting unnecessary responsibility on the client for providing all aspects of the website content, ranging from images to text. Instead, built into Hooked On Code’s proven process are action-oriented steps where the team gathers content and drafts it for review and approval, rather than putting the burden completely on the already busy client. Hooked On Code is continuously streamlining its operations with further simplified processes with the hope of eventually creating transformative shifts in the industry.

Your company’s website has never been in better (or softer) hands.

Zero Waste Web Design

There’s a growing movement of people embracing a “zero waste” lifestyle, seeking to minimize trash in every aspect of their lives. While it might sound like a life full of sacrifice in the name of saving the planet, proponents say it actually saves them time and money and enriches their lives.

What might happen if we took this modern minimalist approach of “zero waste” and applied it to web design and development? Tom Greenwood shows us how, by adopting a zero waste approach to our work as web professionals, we can create a web that is more enriching for users and that delivers better results for our business…and the planet.

Styling the Intrinsic Web with Cascade Layers and Container Queries

Over the last decade, Responsive Web Design and Object Oriented CSS have grown from exciting new trends into the foundations of modern, component-driven web design. But our medium is not done evolving. In 2018, Jen Simmons coined this the era of “Intrinsic Web Design” — with powerful new tools that allow us to build entire layouts based on the intrinsic needs of each component.

This evolution of the responsive web is becoming more clear with several new features in CSS. We’ll look at a number of these developments, with a special focus on Cascade Layers (giving you control over your own cascade), and Container Queries (allowing components to respond to their immediate context). Not only do these features build on what we love most about responsive components, but they’re designed to address some of the biggest challenges in CSS today.

Design in the Background

Our web designs are filled with elements, and every element has its own background area– each and every one a practically infinite canvas on which we can paint, layer by layer. In this talk, Eric will dive into that space and explore some of the many useful and surprising ways it can be used.

However, CSS has changed in the past few years, evolving into a system which can be understood like any other language. We do CSS and our own productivity a disservice if we continue to take a piecemeal approach to the language. By learning the key elements that underpin this system, you will find that the rest of CSS falls into place. In this brand-new talk, Rachel Andrew will set out the core concepts that enable a proper understanding of CSS. Whether you are a beginner or have been wrangling front-ends for years, you will find something here that will make your life much easier.

How to Understand CSS

We often learn CSS via looking for solutions to problems: We need to create a certain layout, or a particular animation, and so we go look for the exact CSS that will make it so. Many web developers today started their careers using a framework, and so much of their experience of CSS is in tweaking the code written by someone else. Too much time is spent trying to overwrite styles, and make customizations, without an understanding of what the underlying framework is actually doing.

Our Stylish Future

The capabilities of CSS have expanded in leaps and bounds in recent years, as browsers have sped up their release cycles, and specifications are being developed and adopted faster than before. There was a time back then when CSS was not even meant for doing layouts, but that time has long past. Today, web layouts are practically synonymous with CSS. In addition to that, CSS can now be used to build components that used to only be feasible with Javascript. This talk will go in-depth into a few of such features and how each property works to cater to real-life use cases.
